YETI and AJET News

Here is a message from your new First Year Rep!

Hey, y'all!

Im happy and excited to be your first year representative. For those of you I haven't met yet, my name is Geneva Ged and I'm from Kentucky, USA. Currently I'm living in the frozen north of Hokuto-shi in Kiyosato. I have my Master's degree in Teaching English as a Second Language, but my passion is socio-linguistics. After the JET Program, I'll probably go back to finish my education if I don't get tired of academia. First years, if you need anything or want to make suggestions for YETI, I'm just a Facebook or Line message away! Thanks!

Geneva

If you are gifted... or even mediocre at cooking, please leave the drinks to those who are better at other things. As always this is going to be an alcohol free event.

We will be supplying some meat for you to stuff your hungry faces, but you all should also bring some too... because meat is amazing. Don't forget the veggies, potatoes, and everything else though!

Risonare is pretty nice. We hit it up the other night.
They'll be doing a projection mapping show from 12/20-12-25

Here's a video from their site of it last year

Another good Xmas lights display is in Nishijima, at the top end of Minobu (Near the Nakatomi paper/craft museum and Ogino)
It's a long street and all of the houses are fully decked out in lights. You can park at Ogino and walk down, or sometimes there is parking in the lot opposite the street entrance. I'm not sure, but I think it starts early December and finishes just after New Year.

Here's the street entrance on Google (you can't miss it at night!)
I'll attach a screenshot too.
